It was only at the beginning of the month the staff were taken into a meeting and we were told if we didnt reach a target by the end of the month, we would be taken through disciplinary procedures. Our targets rely on people paying debt, so there's only so much we can do as humans! However I have had at leadt 1 day off each week for the last 3 weeks. This is due to midwife appointments and the fact i have a bugger of a UTI. The day I had off for the UTI was last week - it was far too uncomfortable for me to even contemplate work. Luckily I had some amoxicillan still in the house from a UTI in first triemester, so i took those and rested. I do know that with me, stress makes it a lot worse. Today I have been hit with it again. I only have 3 antibiotics left, and I know i need a course of them to take asap, as i know left untreated it can be a complication in pregnancy. Work are getting grumpy and I have been told to get some evidence that I am seeing a doctor again - something which has never been asked before and I think they are beginning to see me as a liability. I know that whether we hit this stupid target or not, we probably will go through disciplinary procedures anyway - they are just like that. I'm starting to feel a little unprotected and i cannot help that I am ill. I certainly do want to be in work and try my best, but I know baby and my health should come first - but it doesnt stop me worrying. Where do i stand if I need to take time off ill in this case? Should I even care?!!
